Both Plant City Colts teams that made the MidFlorida Football and Cheerleading Conference have made it to the playoff semifinal round after last weekend’s action in Plant City.
The Mitey Mites won the morning game against the Childs Park Rattlers, 12-6. They broke a 6-6 halftime tie on Dalshon Chatman’s go-ahead rush over the goal line from a yard out in the third quarter and playing stifling defense through the rest of the game.
The Pee Wees picked up a 14-7 win over the Zephyrhills Bulldawgs in the afternoon game. Ta’vare Miller had himself a day: he scored the game’s only touchdown in the first half on a tackle-breaking run, then followed up with a pick six in the second half to seal the win for the Colts.
This weekend, the Colts teams will hit the road for the next round of playoff action. Both the Mitey Mites and the Pee Wees will face off against the Greenwood Panthers. Neither team played Greenwood in the regular season, but they’ll get a tough test — the Panthers Mitey Mites went undefeated and didn’t allow a score all season, per the MFFCC, and the Pee Wees only lost twice in the regular season.
